  • DATE:December 14,2020

Principle

CRP is synthesized in the liver and released into the circulatory system in response to proinflammatory stimuli, the strongest of which is interleukin-6 (IL-6). It is this positive response to inflammation from which CRP derives its diagnostic utility and categorizes it with “acute phase reactants”. CRP has been called the archetype of acute-phase proteins due to its rapid (24 to 28 hours) and marked response to a wide variety of inflammatory conditions and diseases. These stimuli include bacterial and fungal components, as well as damaged cell membranes from injured tissue arising from trauma, arthritis, vasculitides, and a spectrum of autoimmune processes.
